with varying musicians through the week, and a gorgeous view through vegetation to the sea and a variety of places to be seated. Staff hard-working and personable.

This place is a disgrace! The food is garbage and they will rip you off for everything you order if you’re not careful. Go to any other restaurant in the area, but stay away from this one. Bad service, horrible food, warm stale flare beer.

Best sunset view you'll probably ever see. Come for happy hour. Get discounted drinks and watch the sun set over the Pacific framed by cliffs.

What a beautiful place! Excellent service and very delicious food. 100% recommended. 😃 It’s next to the Manuel Antonio’s mall, so is near of everything you need.

It’s a shame when the food is so fantastic, but the service is so terrible. Food was delicious and fresh. There was a live band playing that was so drunk they couldn’t string together a chorus. I even heard someone booing them!

Most of the tables have a great view, and there is a bar with a full view you could wait if they don't take reservations.
